The U.S. International Trade Commission made a sunset review ruling on the 13th, continuing to impose anti-dumping duties on concrete steel products imported from China and other seven countries.

The U.S. International Trade Commission issued a statement on the same day that the Commission believes that the cancellation of anti-dumping duties on concrete steel products imported from China, Belarus, Indonesia, Latvia, Moldova, Poland and Ukraine may lead to substantial damage to the relevant industries in the United States for a foreseeable period of time.

According to the U.S. trade remedy policy procedure, since the U.S. Department of Commerce has previously made an affirmative ruling on anti-dumping sunset review, the U.S. International Trade Commission's ruling on the same day indicated that the U.S. will continue to impose anti-dumping duties on concrete steel products imported from the above-mentioned countries. The anti-dumping tax rate applicable to related products in China is 133.

The so-called sunset review refers to the administrative review of the five-year expiration of the anti-dumping duty on the product. According to the Uruguay Round negotiations, the United States must cancel the anti-dumping duty five years after the implementation of the anti-dumping duty, unless the U.S. Department of Commerce and the U.S. International Trade Commission believe that the cancellation of the anti-dumping duty will lead to the recurrence of dumping or continue to cause damage to the U.S. industry.

The U.S. government began to impose anti-dumping duties on reinforced concrete products imported from the above-mentioned countries in September 2001, announced the first round of sunset review in 2006, and ruled to continue to impose anti-dumping duties in 2007. In July 2012, the U.S. Department of Commerce announced a second round of sunset review, and in November of that year ruled that the cancellation of anti-dumping duties on such products may lead to a recurrence of dumping. The U.S. International Trade Commission also agreed to a sunset review in October 2012.

The Ministry of Commerce of China has repeatedly expressed the hope that the US government will abide by its commitment to oppose trade protectionism, jointly safeguard a free, open and fair international trade environment, and properly handle trade frictions in a more rational way.
